How to buy practical and useful clothes hangers?
Today we are going to talk about one of the problems-how to buy clothes hangers.
I know that many people buy clothes hangers casually in supermarkets, and even clothes hangers retrieved from dry cleaners are used as usual. But in fact, whether the clothes rack is chosen properly or not directly affects whether the clothes you put on your upper body are decent or not.
That’s why some people dress like rags even if they wear expensive clothes, while others look so decent and appropriate no matter what they wear.
Today’s article will talk about “those things about clothes hanger purchase” from two parts: what elements need attention when purchasing clothes hangers and which clothes hangers are worth buying in the market.

- Elements when purchasing clothes hangers
1) hanger size The size of clothes hanger can be divided into two aspects: width and thickness.
Let’s talk about the width first. In the actual purchase process, in fact, we don’t pay special attention to the size of hangers in China, and the width is generally in the range of 40~44cm. This width is a “universal width” that can be applied to most clothing categories, whether men or women. No matter shirts, sweaters or knitwear, the width is the same.
However, occasionally, there will be men’s clothes with special requirements for shoulder support, or with relatively large size. At this time, it is necessary to use a hanger with a width of about 47cm.
When you buy, you should pay attention to the size of your favorite hanger style according to the clothes you plan to hang to dry.
Let’s talk about the thickness. The influence of the thickness of clothes hanger mainly lies in two aspects: one is the space use of wardrobe, and the other is the supporting force to the shoulders of clothes.
The thinner the hanger itself, the less hanging space it takes up in the wardrobe, which means that you can hang more clothes with the same length of hanging rod. It sounds great, but the thinner the thickness is, the better. If the clothes hanger is too thin, the weaker the support for the shoulders of clothes will be, so that both the clothes hanger itself and the clothes to be hung are extremely easy to deform.
So what kind of clothes hanger thickness is appropriate? According to my purchasing experience, the thickness of most clothes hangers is right or left, and if it is smaller, it needs careful consideration.
There are also some clothes hangers, such as clothes with a certain weight, such as thick coats and suits, whose shoulders need greater support. The thickness of the clothes hanger needs to be increased, and 3~5cm can be considered.
- Clothes hanger shape
1) shoulder line
The most typical problem in choosing a hanger with poor shoulder lines is to air two bags on both sides of the clothes, which many people have missed.
Therefore, when we choose the clothes hanger, we should look at its two sides’ shapes, preferably circular arc or semicircle, so it has no obvious angular sense of line turning. Even if clothes are hung on it for a long time, it will not cause shoulder deformation.
2) Length and shape of hook This is really a problem that few people will notice, but it is often encountered in real life.
The size and shape of the opening of the hanger hook determines how difficult it is for us to hang the clothes on the clothes bar. Some hangers have the shape of “long in the longitudinal direction and narrow in the transverse direction”. You will find that when the clothes bar is relatively high, it is very laborious to take or put them.
Therefore, when choosing, we should take a closer look at the shape and size of this position.
- Problems of several common hangers
1) dip coat hanger
Is the dip coat hanger useful? There must be, but it’s obviously not what we often see in the picture.
The advantage of this kind of clothes hanger is that it is light, slim and cheap, which is used by many dry cleaners. However, this kind of clothes hanger is very useless. The plastic on its outer layer is easy to age and fall off, and the metal inside will rust when exposed.
Moreover, its supporting force is also very weak, which not only makes it easy to hang clothes out of shape, but also loses its shape because of hanging slightly heavier clothes.
2) Round plastic clothes hanger
It is not skid-proof, and silk and chiffon clothes are easy to move when hung up.
Its thickness is too thick, which is about 1cm, which takes up a lot of space.
The opening of the hook is too small, which makes it laborious to dry clothes.
3) Wooden clothes hanger
I know this kind of clothes hanger can be seen in many shops. It seems to be very tall.
But I don’t think anyone who has actually used it will be particularly fond of it.
First of all, the thickness is too thick, which takes up a lot of space, and it is impossible to use it in a large number of wardrobes; Secondly, it is heavy, and it is not very convenient to take it or take it. Some people seem to be obsessed with the fact that suits must be hung on wooden hangers, but I want to say that plastic hangers with sufficient thickness and support are not missing.
4) Trousers rack
It is more common, however, people who have used it can recall your use process.
Is this clip easy to leave marks? Because its width is smaller than that of ordinary clothes hangers, is it easy to drown in a group of hanging clothes, which makes it difficult to find them? Every time you want to take off the clothes on it, do you have to take them out first?
Therefore, in my opinion, this kind of trousers rack is basically an existence waiting to be eliminated.
5) Sponge hanger
This kind of clothes hanger was very popular for a while in previous years, but it was actually useless. First of all, its thickness takes up unnecessary space. Secondly, it is “straight”, so it can’t be used to hang clothes with shoulders and sleeves, which will deform clothes.
